Win a lifetime of LotRO from Massively {Massively}

Dec 23rd 2009 3:05PM I would like a lifetime subscription please. :)

Breakfast Topic: Your random dungeon experiences {WoW}

Dec 16th 2009 5:17PM I've done quite a lot of the random heroics with really positive results. I am a Paladin healer, and I've run into a lot of really good tanks. I like tanks that keep up the pace. I did, however, have one bad experience. It didn't turn me off of the dungeon finder, just kept me from utter giddiness.

I queued for my first random of the day and promptly jumped into HoC. I was surprised to see three Paladins, but whatever, we have a tank, a healer and a dps. The paladin that had signed up as dps asked me if I had a dps spec. I replied that I did, but it wasn't very good and I signed up as a healer. I like to heal, I don't really see that as a problem, usually.

Anyway, this paladin dps insists that I switch to dps. I reply that I signed up to heal and would prefer to do so.

At this, the tank paladin (the other one), sits down and makes a very offensive sexual remark toward me. I was really quite shocked that I had become the bad guy. i can only assume they were friends. They were from the same server, but not the same guild.

So, i waited for a moment and then commented I would find another group and wished them good luck. Left the instance and began anew with a really great pug group in the Pit of Saron. Good times.

Guildwatch: The drama trifecta {WoW}

Sep 5th 2007 8:36PM Mr. Schramm, you seem to doubt that a paladin can tank the Prince in Karazhan. I am the Elysium raid leader, and was present for that very fight. I can assure you that our paladin tank performed perfectly in that encounter. It was our second day trying Prince, our second attempt.

Here is the evidence, courtesy of WWS.

Addon Spotlight: Fubar {WoW}

Jun 11th 2007 11:38AM I love FuBar and have been using it for quite some time. Clutter reduction at it's finest.

Reader UI: Chronnick {WoW}

Jun 5th 2007 2:48PM Very nice, my own UI is very similar to yours. Someone mentioned Pitbull unitframes, I recently made the switch from AgUF to Pitbull and I like it. They are very similar though, Pitbull has a few options that are fun more than anything. :)

One that you have here that I haven't used is Wow Instant Messenger, I look forward to trying it out.

One I'd like to highlight from your list is XLoot. This is a wonderful addon that I rely on constantly. As a raid leader and Loot Master for my guild, Xloot is a dream for distributing loot and other functions. One thing that I've found enjoyable is the automatic linking to selectable channels when loot is distributed. For example, based on my preset filters, when I assign an epic item to a player, Xloot automatically links that item to guild chat along with the player that received the item. It creates a nice dimension of camaraderie within the guild, with many congratulations flooding into guild chat.

In any case, very nice UI.

Breakfast topic: Thottbot vs. Allakhazam vs. Wowhead {WoW}

Jun 1st 2007 11:23AM Allakhazam gives me a headache, very cluttered. I used to use Thottbot, right up to the moment I discovered Wowhead. Wowhead is the best, love it.

World Wide WoW: Pirates' treasures: gold and spam {WoW}

May 28th 2007 11:26AM Interesting. I have often pondered the subjective and individual Terms of Service of a particular entity and how they impact a society as 'law.'

In the case of Blizzard, World of Warcraft is their game and they are free to do with is as they wish. So, if they choose to eliminate gold buyers and sellers, they are at liberty to do so. However, as to why so many people are so vehemently opposed to the endeavors of the gold buying and selling industry is a bit perplexing. Are they breaking laws?

As someone who does not use a gold selling service, I don't really care about them. The game is what it is and I will very likely never know what it would be like without gold buyers and sellers.

Anyway, interesting article.

Ask WoW Insider: What's up with bar AddOns? {WoW}

May 11th 2007 5:01PM I too use and enjoy Bongos. I used to enjoy Discord's incredible functionality, but Bongos is really easy to use.

On my paladin, I bind all the necessary spells/abilities to keystrokes on a speedpad and then hide all the bars. An interesting way to play, without seeing any buttons onscreen whatsoever. I use a cooldown addon that shows cooldowns in a timer bar.

On other toons, I use a variety of button configurations. Bongos allows really a great deal of customization with an easy interface.
